[automatically translated] In the alluvial plain of Licata (South Sicily), under a semiarid climate, soils are irrigated with saline waters of the Salty river and groundwater (C5-S1) for the production of vegetable crops. The analytical data show salinisation processes and sodicizzazione soil. The salt concentration of the soil influence the quantitative and qualitative response of crops. The authors, through the ionic composition of the aqueous extracts of zucchini and fennel ashes (Cucurbita pepo and Foeniculum vulgare) describe the high quality end product.
